paypal setup

forgive the Switzerland newbie here...trying to get verified on Paypal and I'm lost when it comes to figuring out what Account number to put in...it only takes up to 16 digits and the full account number for UBS is longer than that!

let's pretend (not silly enough to put in my real one, so no posts to the contrary please) that the info next to what says Account is:

CH01 0020 3131 4545 6767 X

is my account number somewhere in that mess or is it something completely different? Don't want to guess and get charged CHF5 for every guess that's wrong

There is also another spot where it has the 3 digit clearingcode then the last 9 digits so using the above example it would be 200-454567.67X but you aren't allowed dashes or . either so didn't think that was the answer either.

I've had a few paypal accounts before in a couple different currencies, but am stumped by a silly account number and need to get some cash to a friend back home.
Thanks!

Re: paypal setup

CH01 0020 3131 4545 6767 X would be your IBAN (International Bank Account Number)

I think the 0020 3 is the Bank Code

and

131 4545 6767 X is your account number...I think

Re: paypal setup

16 digits, sure it's not a credit card number?

Re: paypal setup

MAX 16 digits - credit card is a separate setup, so nope, definitely not that.

at least I'm feeling a bit better that it might not be quite that easy
